The Commodores will be making their sixth consecutive appearance at the national finals, winning the title in 2007 and being semi-finalists in 2008. The past two years they have placed fifth.
"We are excited and I am pleased with the invitation," said Coach John Williamson. "I don't believe in the history of this tournament that any team has dug itself out of such a poor start to the season and still made this field as we just did. Since January we have won 79% of our matches. That is a real accomplishment and I'm proud of our team for bouncing back."
The Commodores were 81-39 over the long season and carried the nation's best strength of schedule. Highlighting their season were team championships at Arkansas States' Mid-Winter Classic and the Holiday Classic, hosted by Alabama A & M.
Joining Vanderbilt in the field are Kutztown, Fairleigh Dickinson, Nebraska, Central Missouri, Sam Houston State, Maryland-Eastern Shore and Arkansas State.
The NCAA Championship will take place April 14-16 at the Skore Lanes in Taylor.
